Abstract :
On the Antwerp-Paris art trade and the creative shifts that both artists and art dealers displayed in their appropriation and transformation, or partial adaptation, of Netherlandish imagery for export to Paris in the 1650s and early 1660s. Identifies two novelties which helped sustain an export trade in paintings from Antwerp to Paris: 1) the modest cantoor, escritoire or cabinet to which small paintings were added for decoration; and 2) the practice of selecting and sanitizing certain Netherlandish elements in known products, combining them with Italianate subject matter and settings, resulting in a new subclass of Italo-Netherlandish derivative paintings adapted to Parisian tastes. ;
